The Wine Atlas of Canada
By Tony Aspler, photographs by Steven Elphick
Random House Canada
This is the first book we have read on Canada. And if you want an introduction to wine in Canada, this is an excellent choice. After a short introduction and history (and some very recent history!) the author takes you through each of the wine regions in Canada. In each region the main producers (or perhaps all?) are profiled, including tasting notes and practical information to help you plan a visit. The author is one of Canada’s best known wine writers. Excellent photography by Steven Elphick. If we could have one wish it would be for better maps… Indispensable if you are going to Canada.
